9780199253012: Literature in the Modern World: Critical Essays and Documents

This text offers a unique combination of English, European, American and Post-Colonial perspectives on literary study from the 1920s to the present day. Carefully introduced and arranged to highlight the development of debates, it is designed to engage newcomers to the field with some of the main themes and issues that will concern them as readers of modern literary texts of all genres. In the second edition, there is an increased focus on questions of gender and identity and on recent debates, such as "Literature and Nation" and "Literature and Value." The reach and relevance of the book has been extended, including more writers and critics from the world beyond Europe.

Review:


"A useful collection of critical essays about the study of modern literature in English."--Virginia Quarterly Review


"An intelligent and useful sampling of recent reflections on literature. A good text for introductory courses at either the undergraduate or graduate level."--Steven Rendall, University of Oregon


"Fills a need that has long been felt by teachers of courses in criticism and theory: an introductory selection of readings in, and a clear schematization of, the key debates in the discipline at present."--D.G. Myers, Texas A&M University


"An excellent selection of materials."--Volek Emil, Arizona State University


"A very useful text."--Gregory W. Bredbeck, University of California, Riverside
